BernCo Warns Residents to Beware Personal Information Theft Scams


Bernalillo County and the BernCo Sheriff’s Office are aware of coronavirus (COVID-19) related scams trying to steal personal information from residents.

Residents are warned that callers, impersonating healthcare services and providers, are asking for dates of birth, social security numbers, and names. The callers pretend this information is required to receive COVID-19 related test results, treatments, or vaccines.

Residents are warned not to give their social security numbers over the phone. Healthcare services and providers in Bernalillo County are not asking for SSNs on the phone. If a caller claiming to be a healthcare service or provider asks for a SSN, it is likely a scam.
